Judge Alsup: how to drive from San Francisco to Monterey
Authored by: PJ on Sunday, May 06 2012 @ 02:06 PM EDT
Thank you for that. I had not seen it. I look
for Joe Mullin articles any time I see them, but
this was bylined by Timothy B. Lee, and in small
print at the bottom that Mullin "contributed" to
the article. I'll say. He's in the courtroom,
not Lee, and he got the quotation. So I put it
in News Picks and I put Joe's byline there too.
I think, personally, that Joe's the best reporter
on courtroom news I've ever seen, actually. I
wish he could afford to work for free for us.

: )

But he can't. And we can't afford him.

Judge Alsup: how to drive from San Francisco to Monterey

I am currently reading "The Clockwork Universe" by Edward Donlick.
I'm in the middle of a chapter about The Royal Society.

'The Royal Society pushed for a radically new approach: knowledge would advance
more quickly if new findings were discussed openly and published for all to
read. Thinkers would inspire one another, and ideas would breed and multiply.
Robert Boyle made the most forceful argument against secrecy. A thinker who
concealed his discoveries was worse than a miser who hoarded his gold, Boyle
maintained, because the miser had no choice but to cling to his treasure. To
give it away was to lose it. Thinkers had no such excuse, because ideas were
not like gold but "like torches, that in the lighting of others do not
waste themselves." With ideas as with flames, in fact, to share meant to
create light.'

It appears Oracle is trying to be a miser with ideas.
